The book is about meta-physics in the truest sense of the world - above physics. Unlike religion, which presents a set a dogmatic beliefs, this book presents non-judgemental information.The approach is "try it; if it makes sense to you, use it."
Some of the insights have to do with how we shape our own reality. Seth teaches us that we always have a choice about what is happening in our lives, and provides insights as to why seemlingly bad things may be happening. In all cases, these things have to do with something that we have chosen. Its not about karma, or retribution, or atonement. Its more about creating the kind of life you want to have for yourself. Once you realize the mechanics of things and how the universe works, you can shape your life to better suit you.
This is what I mean by meta-physics. This book is almost a "how to guide" of the universe. Once you know what the mechanisms are, you have a much better time understanding how to use them.
I don't mean to say that this is simple. The lessons are often complex and difficult to make sense of.Read more ›
You can literally turn to any random page and learn something amazing within a few minutes of reading. In fact, once you've read it for your first time, you'll almost instantly want to return into the pages for another magical moment, and you'll smile as you spot it occasionally on your bookshelf.
I read this book with some serious doubts for the first time when I was 16. At 320 lbs, I was a miserable wreck, looking to food and the lonliness of my room to find meaning in life. I read this book along with some other psychology texts, thinking my understanding of the world would benefit from getting a psych degree in college. But after reading this, and discussing the topics with my mentor at the time, I realized that I was indeed in control of my own destiny.
I started on a diet and exercise, determined to lose weight and improve myself. This quest lasted 9 months. I could taste the finish line as I ran five miles every day. Even when it was pouring snow, went back home, put on cleats, then returned to running again. My mother actually made fun of my "wet running suit" I'd wear on days that it rained - yes I was that dedicated. At 170 lbs, I began working out with weights and slowed down the running. Looking much better, feeling so much more confident, I had done the exercises in this book every night and kept a journal.
I still have those journals, and occasionally read through them to see just how powerful the inspirational pages are in this awesome book.Read more ›
People can be funny about the "Seth books." I recommend them all, and "The Nature of Personal Reality" in particular. Yet I also realize that some people aren't quite ready for Seth. That's okay. Many of the concepts will seem so radical, so revolutionary, that they can be a bit much to take at first. The more you read Seth, the more you understand. And the beauty of this book is that it has almost become the "Bible" for the whole New Age movement. In fact, after you read it through once, do what I do. Take the book down from the shelf, open it at random, and start reading. Almost always you will discover that the passage you chance upon has some personal meaning to you. This is the secret to really getting the most out of "The Nature of Personal Reality."
